Abstract

Computer-aided design optimisation and analysis of salient pole alternators D.J. Morrow," C.E. Tindall," P.A.J. Calvert* " School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, F. G. Wilson (Engineering) Ltd ABSTRACT A computer-aided design package for small, two-pole alternators is described. Synthesis and analysis are partly based on traditional techniques but also rely on specially developed algorithms, employed where demanded by the particular topology of the high-speed, salient-pole machines. The package is implemented on the IBM PC, or compatible, using Microsoft QuickBASIC and a windows type user interface. The design process is interactive, with user intervention encouraged at various junctures and the use of standard parts invited where appropriate. 1. INTRODUCTION Computer aided design of electrical machines is by no means a novel process; virtually all design offices have employed the technique, in one form or another, for some years and, indeed, two of
